A look at the life and work of Jewish-Israeli lawyer Lea Tsemel who has
represented political prisoners for nearly 50 years. We meet Lea and the
team as they prepare for their youngest defendant yet—Ahmad, a
13-year-old boy implicated in a knife attack on the streets of Jerusalem.
To many, Lea is a traitor who defends the indefensible. For others, s
he’s more than an attorney—she’s a true ally.
